Welcome to my weekly post on the craziness that occurs in my life...essentially, weekly therapy for me :D feel free to leave a comment (hopefully with support!) or just pass over this post altogether if it doesn't interest you!
Today's topic: I wish I lived in England
Why, might you ask, would an American wish they lived in England? There are several reasons, actually.
-I don't really fit in here in the US
A lot of my habits are not the norm for the American culture. For instance, I drink a lot of tea. Usually when I mention that I drink tea to a friend, they respond with "You drink that dirty water?". I also don't enjoy the staple American food-hamburgers and fries. It's pretty much sacrilege when I say no to a hamburger over here. I don't eat a lot of red meat and would much prefer to each fish and chips, which is pretty expensive over here and not that accessible.
-England has Harry Potter
-I hate driving and much prefer to take a train
Here, you have to drive everywhere unless you live in the city, which I hate. I love trains, and there's almost none here in the US and from what I've seen, there's more over in England.
-I love history
I love old churches and all the history that England has. I could probably get lost for hours in some places.
-I don't like hot weather
From what I hear, England is pretty cool and rainy-my kind of climate. I'm not a big fan of the sun and heat and much prefer to live year round in leggings, sweaters, and boots.
I know that there are negatives and positives to everything...but, I don't feel like I belong where I am sometimes.
So tell me, is the grass really greener on the other side? Do you wish you lived in a totally different place?
